H Hawkline - Black Domino Box EP Artist H.Hawkline
Title Black Domino Box EP
Label Trash Aesthetics
The "Black Domino Box" EP finds Mr Hawkline in a state of flux. Whereas his previous albums "A Cup Of Salt" and "The Strange Uses Of Ox Gall", were vinyl exercises in Sandy Bull powered finger picking and field recordings, with only a pinch of songwriting, Hawkline has undergone a Dylanesque electrical epiphany, becoming a jangling guitar hero of 1983 to 1996 vintage in the process, simultaneously fully embracing, for the first time, The Song.

Lyrically, Hawkline channels his idol Richard Brautigan through a rough cement mixture of sludge rock, Felt and seaweed, listing his possessions in his rented room in what is a poignant appraisal of a dispossessed generation of multi-tasking, rarely paid young musicians.

Vinyl only release.
12" + poster , printed sleeve on reverse board (matt)

H Hawkline - I Romanticize Artist H Hawkline
Title I Romanticize
Label Heavenly
I Romanticize (like its predecessor and Heavenly Records debut, 2015’s In The Pink Of Condition) was recorded at Samur Khouja’s Seahorse Sound studio in Los Angeles with all the lyrics written and then vocals recorded in Narberth in west Wales.  “Some words, as with their meaning, are unavoidable - ‘love’, ‘goodbye’, ‘time’, ’you’, – but you can at least try and dress them up in some new clothes.”
Co-produced by Samur, Huw and Cate Le Bon, who also forms part of the quartet who appear on the record along with Josiah Steinbrick – LA composer and producer  – and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. “They were the absolute best people for the job, and I also happen to be lucky enough to call them friends. Without their hands and ears the wet clay would have collapsed,” said Huw.

H Hawkline - In The Pink Of Condition Artist H Hawkline
Title In The Pink Of Condition (WMP15)
Label Heavenly
Although little is known about H Hawkline at this stage, international record collector, occasional DJ partner and hirsute head Andy Votel divulges that he is “from a family lineage that comprises of 70s radio DJs and Welsh Horror movie stars.” He continues: “H Hawkline’s own place in the limelight often cascades and intertwines with the likes of his close friends Cate Le Bon [who produced this album], Sweet Baboo and Gruff Rhys. As an adept multi-intrumentalist main vein Huw Evans claws his influences from a broad outernational record collection comprising of Faustian Krautrock, Welsh Damp Wave, Turk Jerk and South American pre-punk.”

An album of “strange pop” (words borrowed from Huw), ‘In The Pink Of Condition’ is a controlled explosion of laser-guided guitar melody (think a careering Television show or Pavement outside the original site of Spillers) and whipsmart bi-lingual wordplay.

The LP format is packaged in a gatefold sleeve and comes with a digital download code.

H. Hawkline - Ghouls Artist H. Hawkline
Title Ghouls [12"]
Label Turnstile
• H Hawkline, the song-writing alter-ego of Cardiff’s Huw Evans, releases ‘Ghouls’, the follow up to last year’s quietly acclaimed ‘Black Domino Box’.
At one turn slacker-anthems to be strummed at sunset on a South Wales porch, and at the next, deranged, troubled stomps that are to be kept safely locked up in the garage, ‘Ghouls’ confidently confirms that H Hawkline is forging his own path
within a lineage of gifted Welsh songwriters.

Backed by longtime collaborators Cate Le Bon, Sweet Baboo and R Seiliog, this is an exciting tease of what’s to come on the full-length he promises to be recording this Summer.

Haasts Eagled - II: For Mankind Artist Haast's Eagled
Title II: For Mankind
Label Holy Roar
"In this age of instant gratification and ‘artist accessibility’ via social media and the internet at large, it must be said that some of our favourite bands are those who still manage to maintain an air of mystery, intentional or not. Of course this has to be backed up by incredible music, perhaps even more so if every other aspect of a band or artist is hiding in the shadows…..
Whether this obtuseness is by design or flaw matters not when it comes to the Newport-based Haast’s Eagled. The simple fact is that ‘II: For Mankind’ is 4 tracks (clocking in near to 1 hour) of some of the most imaginative, plaintive, acerbic and kaleidoscopic doom we have had the pleasure of hearing.
Undulating between monastic contemplation, soaring vocals, titanic riffing, esoteric solos and even exquisitely tasteful doomloungejazz, this is less ‘a journey’ and more a perfectly executed mission of sound.
Of course this is not easy first-time listening, none of the best albums are. However, what we have in our hands here is an album that should go on to be a cult-classic of the underground doom/stoner scene." - Holy Roar

Helen Love’s records are jam-packed with colourful icons and brilliant, endless nostalgic memories of the history of pop.

Title Donkey Jacket
Label Alive!
Henry’s Funeral Shoe is formed by Welsh brothers Aled (guitars, vocals) and Brennig Clifford (drums, percussion). Their blues inspired rockn’roll reaches back to the sounds of yesterday, and artists such as Canned Heat, early Fleetwood Mac, Rory Gallagher, The Groundhogs (which who they recently shared the stage), and even early Captain Beefheart come to mind. “Donkey Jacket” (named for the coat worn by Welsh miners) cranks up the blues power, but also delivers some emotional acoustic numbers, making a for a richer album than their highlypraised 2009 self-titled debut. The album was recorded in Wales by Tim Hammill and mixed in Detroit by Jim Diamond, and features guest appearances by John ‘Ned’ Edwards, a long time collaborator of Van Morrison who also played with Dr John and Solomon Burk, on harmonica, slide guitar and mandolin, Pete Hurley, the bass player for the legendary seventies Welsh band Lone Star, and Justin Beynon of the Broken Vinyl Club on piano.
LP is limited and clear vinyl : super Alive! records style.

HMS Morris - Interior Design Artist HMS Morris
Title Interior Design
Label Waco Gwenci
Pulsing and brooding, HMS Morris’ cinematic electro pop is devilishly and deliciously unhinged. For those who like Bjork levels of quirkiness, Melody’s Echo Chamber-like dreamscapes and a woman who rivals Kate Bush for mascara-smeared caterwauling, then anchor this ship of cool to your heart.

Hornby Pylons - Hornby Pylons Artist Hornby Pylons
Title Hornby Pylons
Asides from being such lovely friends of ours, this lot of local scientist/musicians make top notch electronic. They are like the ’Wombles’ they aren’t all that hairy but they do find their instruments in skips and charity shops and fashion them back to life with copious amounts of gaffa tape. Rather sketchy and lo-fi but truly special and most highly recommended!

If you still need convincing then check out their myspace where you can hear tunes!

Title You Belong To Dax Darling
Label See Monkey Do Monkey

"Superduper Supergrass blasts with lovely bendy 60’s pop bits. Most endearing." Simon Williams, Fierce Panda

Houdini Dax are Cardiff’s bulgingly exciting up and coming sensation, born from the mucky coitus of psychedelic Beatles, The Kinks and Arctic Monkeys.

HUW M - Gathering Dust Artist HUW M
Title Gathering Dust [#DyddMiwsigCymru]
Label Gwymon
Huw M’s debut album was a real Spillers favourite featuring in our end of year round ups and selling well from the stereo in store to those whose ears were lucky enough to stumble across this gem.  Album number two is no different in its appeal with guest spots shared between Lucy Simmonds, Alun Bonello and Bethan Reynolds.
Once again Huw M has crafted an album we wont find hard to share with you!

Huw M - Os Mewn Swn Artist Huw M
Title Os Mewn Swn [#DyddMiwsigCymru]
Label Rasal / SOR
A wonderfully weird mixture of original melodies, a few borrowed Welsh folk songs, mangled together with influences from France and Brazil, all conveyed in his Welsh mother tongue to create what’s been described as ’small pop’ of ’great, great loveliness’. The 1st two copies of this sold within minutes of us putting it on the player in here! What better recommendation do you need? We rate this very highly!
